My name is Jaime Jones-Trummer, known to your students as Mrs. Trummer. I am so happy to have your children as my students this year! I have been teaching second grade at Gomez Heritage Elementary for 6 years now. I can't wait to see your child grow and change this school year!
I am an OPS graduate, and enjoy giving back to the district that I grew up in. Before coming to teach at Gomez, I worked in Sioux Falls, SD as a residential treatment counselor for a residential facility that treats boys and girls up to age 13. I enjoyed tutoring and volunteering with immigrant and refugee families as well. I then took a position with Boys Town here in Omaha before joining the Gomez Heritage team. I was so very lucky to get my favorite grade level...2nd grade!
I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Augustana in Sioux Falls, SD. Go Vikings!!
Bachelor of Arts in Education, Communication Disorders | Endorsements in Kindergarten, ESL
Master of Arts in Elementary Education with a concentration in Reading
Your students will get to know Augie throughout the school year as well, as that is our No Excuses University! I am looking forward to working with you and your family to provide a safe and supportive environment to help your child become their best!
